COMMITTEE INFORMATION

Welcome

Hi, I'm Fr. Bob Deehan, the Pastor at Holy Family Catholic church in Duxbury and I'd like to welcome you to our parish. This website is designed to help you learn what we are all about, that is, to help deepen people's relationship with Jesus and his Church through our sacramental and spiritual life, faith formation and service opportunities, and the ways we gather as a community to support and uplift each other. We are the local community of disciples tending to the mission of Jesus in this corner of the vineyard.

Pastor's Corner

St. John Henry Newman / Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day

10-20-2019Rev. Robert J. Deehan, V.F.

This past week, the Church marked two important occasions among the many activities and feasts going on within the Church around the world. The first took place last Sunday, October 13 when Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman was canonized a saint. St. John Henry Newman was one of the most beloved and well-known preachers of his time. Originally, an Anglican priest, Newman converted to Catholicism and became a Catholic priest and cardinal. Known for his beautiful prose and captivating preaching, Newman has long been a source of inspiration to many both inside and outside the Catholic Church. Newman's masterful knowledge of the lives of the saints, Catholic doctrine, and, above all, Sacred Scripture, has helped many Catholics deepen their faith, and appreciation of the bible and the liturgical seasons. His writings are numerous and varied; and, since he wrote in English, they are very accessible. An interesting bit of trivia about Cardinal Newman is that the miracle attributed to his intercession, which led to his beatification (step just before canonization), was the healing of a local Permanent Deacon, Deacon Jack Sullivan, who lives in Hanson. You can learn more about this miracle by visiting www.deaconjacksullivan.com.
